Excerpt from book:
“If we seriously hope to resolve the chaos the world is facing and to achieve the viable and sustainable global future everybody envisions, what is needed is a social-economic-political system in which all the Earth’s seven billion inhabitants are able to develop and to engage their unique abilities in important and beneficial activities and, thus, to experience their lives as having meaning and significance. Necessarily, too, we will need to evolve goals for mankind and Planet Earth that people perceive as giving purpose and direction to their own lives and, therefore, as worthy of the commitment of their time and their creative energies. As far as I can see, there is no viable alternative.”
